HIV/AIDS Prevention

State law requires that school districts instruct all 5th through 12th grade students in a unit on HIV/AIDS education. Under the law, parents who wish to exclude their child from the HIV/AIDS instruction must first preview the instructional materials. Parents can preview that material during a meeting that is held in the fall each year. Notification of the time and place of that meeting will be posted on the School District’s Internet site and available at each school. For more information, call (360) 629-1236.
